Frameless “Bridger’ Roll Off
Frameless Bridger Roll-Off Trailer
Up to 8,000 pounds more legal payload with the Bridger Roll-Off!
Years and years of experience
Clement built the first frameless roll-off trailer in 1965. Years of dependable service have shown that its tried and proven design can stand the test of time. And hundreds of satisfied owners in markets from coast to coast have benefited from the extra profits made possible by Clement’s ingenuity. The forte of the original Clement Roll-Off trailer was minimum tare weight and maximum payloads. Once thought to be ahead of their time, these design exclusives are now necessities for the professional hauler. Federal bridge laws are being rigidly enforced nationwide, a situation that makes high tech, computer-aided construction mandatory to ensure maximum profits for the hauler.
Clement Innovation made a superior product even better and more profitable
True innovation lies in knowing how to take a superior product and make it the best performer around. Our team of designers took the popular Clement Long-Haul and adapted it to the nationally successful Clement “Bridger” concept. The principle is simple. The “Bridger” is a patented sliding tandem that extends both the internal and external bridges. This addition makes it possible to haul dramatically larger payloads legally and with the advantages normally associated with shorter trailers. When the final destination is reached, the sliding process is reversed so that the load can be dumped over the rear tandem as usual.
Cable Reeving System
The grooved drum winch with cable retainer, (left) in combination with a large 11-1/2” sheave at the front, ensures a ;center line pull on the container at all times.
1. Centipede action
When your driver finds himself in a muddy or slippery area, he can get extra bonus power from the Roll-Off. Clement’s double-acting cylinders allow the driver to alternately shorten and lengthen the wheelbase to get out of low-traction areas. As the trailer goes higher into the air, the trailer is pulled forward and the brakes are locked. As the trailer lowers, the tractor is pushed forward. By repeating this process, the driver can push the tractor and pull the trailer to firm footing.
2. 80,000-lb. lifting, loading and unloading capability
Clement features an 80,000-lb.-capacity winch for handling the tandem on the containers, while most other manu-facturers utilize a cylinder reeving system. Why? While it is obvious that other systems can load or unload a container, the name of the game is payload. And Clement’s system is hundreds of pounds lighter than our competitors.
3. Multiple rollers for proper box support
Clement utilizes rollers to ensure proper support of various length boxes from 20 feet to 34 feet. They are brass-bushed with grease fittings for superior performance. Various positions are available for locating stop blocks which ensure proper placement of different sized containers.
Cylinder Reeving System
Optional system: An optional cylinder-style reeving system (right photo) is available. The disadvantages of this option are the 700 pounds of additional weight it adds to the trailer and about 30% less line pull than the winch.
4. Rail Construction
The rails are 4-inch tubular steel with hi-tensile steel top and bottom straps, and are computer designed for long life.
5. Three-point stability
The Clement Frameless Roll-Off gives you three points of stability: 1) the cylinder, 2) draft arms, and 3) the wide base of the tandem on the ground. Compare this with the two points, 1) cylinder and 2) hinge pin, found in conventional frametype roll-offs. When you’re operating in unstable ground conditions such as landfills, Clement’s 3-point stability with its low center of gravity makes the difference. This is because the Clement Roll-Off’s pivot point starts 2 feet lower than that of the frametype roll-off, therefore its center of gravity stays lower as the trailer is raised into the air.
6. Inside/outside roller option
Provides for maximum flexibility to handle a wide variety of containers. The most versatile roll-off you’ll find.
7. Control options
Operations of the Clement Roll-Off can be accomplished with controls in the cab or on the trailer. In-the-cab controls utilize the 5-line wet kit. For maximum utilization of various tractors, controls on the trailer are available
